Join us on March 24 for World TB Day

By: Brier Published: 08/02/2021

The clock is ticking

More than 4,000 people die every day from tuberculosis (TB). To raise awareness, the international community puts the spotlight on World TB Day every year on March 24 to stand in solidarity with the millions of people who suffer from TB, and the millions who have lost their lives. 

Before March 24 - here’s what you can do:

On World TB Day - here’s what you can do:

  • use our social media toolkit to amplify the day.
  • take a photo or a video with a lit up landmark or monument near you (see list below). If you don’t live near one, take a selfie with a sign including the hashtag #EndTB, and share it on social media. Make sure you tag your MP and tell them why this landmark is lit up. Email us your photo so we could use it as part of a recap of the day.
  • use social media to amplify published LTEs on TB (written by you and fellow volunteers), and share stories about people’s lived experience. Tell your friends and family why so many landmarks are lit up in red to recognize World TB Day.

Here’s the list of confirmed landmarks and monuments across Canada that will be lit up in red for World TB Day:
